Publisher's Summary

Kate Merrick takes listeners on a journey to drop the distractions and check back into their actual lives, discovering the good, true, and beautiful things God offers when they choose to be present right here, right now.

For too many women, life just passes by. They feel a lack, a deep dissatisfaction with their circumstances, so they busy themselves in an effort to distract from their less-than-hoped-for lives, constantly looking for what better season may be coming next. In the process, they miss the glorious everyday moments God wants to use and speak through today. 

In Here, Now, Kate Merrick invites women to stop running away from their actual lives and to instead walk in the peace and fullness God offers when they quiet their souls, listen to what he's saying, and live with brave intentionality. With more than a little personal confession, humor, and honest contemplation, Kate brings listeners into her journey to look deep inside their heart, identify and remove the obstacles that prevent them from being truly present, and intentionally receive the gifts of God found in all of life's moments - the painful ones, the big and beautiful ones, and also the ordinary ones.

Mindset altering

Careful.....don’t read this book unless you are ready to change your mindset and be challenged. So much of what we do on a day to day basis is centered around social media. Kate will challenge you take control of the amount of time and thought you give social media and identify what is truly important and meaningful. This book will have you analyzing your life and reprioritizing in a way that will stretch and grow you. Love it. Having my teens listen to this book while traveling this summer and hoping to instill a sense of responsibility and control over the role of social media in their lives.
